Sorry if this has been asked before but is bf basically non existent this year? In other words, will there be anymore new sales on Friday or have they already been released?

The economy has been "good" or "not too bad", that's why there are not really hot deals.

 

And possibly most deals have been showed already, with maybe a few surprises here and there on the day.

I don't think it'll get significantly lower. Do you think you're 1-2 years away from playing it? Maybe it gets to $10 or so, particularly used at GameStop, but PS4 copies probably won't even be in print for a whole lot longer either. If you actually want to play it before next Black Friday, I doubt you see it go lower.


I bought it. I've heard the game is great and I don't plan on getting a PS5 until a few more years have passed. Plus I would rather play with the original character design rather than the Tom Holland look-alike in the PS5 version.

Pretty sure last year, there were decent deals on BF itself, on Cyber Monday, and then the weeks after... I don't think most retailers bother to advertise their sales as much anymore, because they know they'll just have to end up matching whoever has the best price.

How in the did you beat it at 50 hours... and the platinum too?? Did you skip every cutscene? how did you get to level 100?

 

The last chapter or two was just... bad. I fell asleep 'playing' a couple nights in a row. And by playing I mean watching THREE HOURS of nonstop cutscenes with zero gameplay.

Yeah got the plat, didnt skip story cutscenes, but some of the skits I did fast forward cause they were just boring, and having to watch 300+ skits is just meh. Leveling to 100 was easy, just fought the otherworld bosses over and over, and make sure to have exp gear and eat exp food. 

 

I just bought Soul Hackers 2 from Amazon for 29$, hope its good fun.

Feels a lot more muted this year … all the companies started throwing out decent deals without publishing or leaking ads. Just made it feel sporadic and less fun. Much harder to actually figure out what was on sale because all the big companies used apps with games listed, but not static ads that are easier to browse. Kind of a bummer if this is the new norm for Black Friday moving forward.

Yeah, I don't know why they changed Peter like that. Let him actually look a few years older instead of being a perpetual baby. Anyway, if you want to actually feel like Spider-Man, this is the game for you.

They probably figured out if they spread sales out that people spent more money. That's not even looking at the rise of online marketplaces.

None of the games on my wish list went on sale this year, but this has been the best black Friday for me in five years or so. I got all of my Christmas shopping done with some great non-gaming deals there and was able to pick up some games to try out on the cheap.

Gotta say, same. This year is looking pretty "meh".

I wanted one game this Black Friday and it finally dropped this morning to a "buy" price.

Life Is Strange: True Colors (PS5, Series X) is $15 at GameStop/Amazon.

I'd definitely recommend it for this price. It's a lot of fun, and definitely washes the taste of the prior one out of one's palate. But fire up the demo and try it first, just to ensure you like it.

have you played tales of arise? I just beat it this week at 94 hours of gameplay. Generally I change genres after I finish a game. Watching some videos of star ocean, the gameplay looks to be the same as tales.

I can confirm that the $25 Xbox cards are ringing up for 20% off at Dollar General.  Today only, in-store only.  I got $50 for $40.

I've played both and beat both (well one character's story in Star Ocean since there are two). I would say Star Ocean is similar to Tails but at the same time a little different. Combat in Star Ocean is about learning to dodge and not get hit to keep your combat points high since you gain combat points by attacking and lose by taking damage. Plus Star Ocean has a huge crafting element to it which can supplement buying items/gear, and also Star Ocean is a sci fi series. I would say give the demo a go, but I got about $40 worth of fun out of Star Ocean for the 35 hours I spent on it.

The Dollar General I went to had the multi-pack ones in a different spot but I found them after some confusion and the PSN cards worked fine. They are $30 normally and then the 20% discount knocks them to 24.

that is somewhat refreshing to hear. Tales of arise drug on and on. I forced myself to finish it. 100 hour games just aren’t for me anymore.

If you're in Texas/near an heb...the My HEB app has a coupon for spending $100 on certain gift cards (bestbuy being one) and getting a free $25 HEB gift card. So you should be able to use the $100 BB card to get psn/steam/Xbox etc credit and use the $25 heb gift card to get credit as well. Takes a little driving but worth it imo
